Dear Technical type person reading this:
Tell me if what I am looking for exists.
Here’s the story. My computer with all the bells and whistles is upstairs in a tiny little closet. Downstairs, all day long are my children, rental child and dog. There is no place for me to have the computer down there without it being an eyesore.
I wandered around Best Buy and CompUSA, feeling like I was in a foriegn country, and saw those little Email Station gizmos for under $150. ( Most were well under $90). This is exactly what I am looking for ( maybe with a bigger screen, but I don’t care) but these don’t have the capacity to do what I want them to do. The size and portability were perfect ( damn, doesn’t that sound like a penis envy issue.)
I cannot afford a lap top and I do not need internet capacity on it. All I want it for is to stick a disc/zip in it that can go from the computer upstairs to the “walkabout”. It would be for story writing, and maybe, Quicken.
Any suggestions ( in plain english, por favor)
looking for a needle in a haystack?
PS: I do own a laptop, circa 1991. An IBM something. It’s windows capatable but only from Laptop to computer, not vice versa as it is not upgradeable and I think Windows 1.1 ( The Beginning) However, the powercord for it has been lost and I cannot find a replacement for it.
